We've just returned from a week at this site and had a great time despite rather changeable weather. We were lucky enough to have booked through Lifestyle who are easily the cheapest and have just updated all their caravans which meant the one we stayed in had never been used before. The decking area was really big, plenty of room... More

Just back from 1 week in at Le Bois de Valmarie with our family of 4. We stayed with Eurocamp who were fantastic (many thanks to the reps Steve and Maria). We chose this site as it is far enough south to guarantee good weather and because our children (nearly 6 and 4) love water slides . They were not... More

I have just returned home after spending the weekend at Bois de Valmarie with Eurocamp. I went with my husband and 2 children aged 2 & 6. For us the site was fantastic. Just the right size, not too big and not too small. The pool was great and had enough to keep both children entertained for a chunk of... More

The best thing about this site is the pool complex. Set into the hillside with views of the mountains and beach it has slides, waterfalls and jacuzzi jets, so lots to do and our kids (4 and 8) loved it. The lifeguarding is fairly hands-off but this made parents take responsibility for their kids which wasn't a bad thing. The... More

We stayed here for one week at the beginning of August. This was the second leg of our holiday in France, and we had arrived here following four nights at Disneyland Paris. We were a party of five: myself and my wife, our seven year old son, and my wife's parents. We were determined to have a car-free and therefore... More

My first impressions were not favourable. Having spent last 2 years at Sant Angelo in Italy, our first thought was that the pools are smaller than they appear in the photo, and the little hamlet of Racou was just a back street with a few cafes. Oh how wrong those first impressions can be. Racou is charming - an authentic... More

We have stayed here for 10 years, but unfortunately the site has started to fade and certainly no longer merits a 5 * rating. On-site shop and restaurant remain excellent, probably because they are not owned/run by the site. Main reception staff are efficient with one exception who clearly does not want to be there. Areas of concern include an... More

Have just returned from 10 nights at the site. We booked with Eurocamp and the pitch was ideal for us as we were next to one of the play areas. With two young kids (seven and four) this was ideal as they were able to play and meet other kids. The fact that our pitch was quite near the fence... More

Just returned from a very enjoyable 11 day stay at the site with two other families. Children's ages 5 to 15 (mostly teenagers). We stayed with Keycamp as we wanted a 3 bed caravan and our friends both had 2 bed vans with Lifestyle. It is a quiet site certainly compared to its sister site La Sirene at the top... More
